BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2007 Charles Thomas probably won`t get much space when Billy Beane writes his autobiography as Beane was apparently fooled by the only good season of Thomas`s professional career.
2005 A likeable, dirty-uniformed type who can play a capable outfield, Thomas rode a hot late June/July to some respectable 2004 numbers. However, pitchers made adjustments to him later in the season, and the fact that he doesn't project as having the hitting skills to be a major league regular was thrown into bright relief. It's possible, if he concentrates on playing good defense and getting on base, that he'll have a long career as a fourth outfielder, but the lightning that we saw in mid-summer has been let out of the bottle. Traded to the A's as part of the Tim Hudson swap.
